You may remember back at Christmas time I shared a lovely Joy wreath sign with y’all. Weeeell, I loved it so much (that I still had it on my deck until last week) I had to make another! Of course joy isn’t exactly an appropriate word for this time of year so I had to put my thinking cap on.
At first I was going to use the word ‘hop’ and style a bunny into it, I liked that idea but then I thought why not add the ‘e’. I had a little talk with our Pastor about my idea and he thought ‘Hope’ would be a perfect Easter word… this is actually what he said…
“the Easter message is: Good Friday- all hope seemingly lost as Christ goes to the cross and dies. Easter Sunday- hope regained as Jesus conquers death and sin as he is resurrected back to life”
Could a Hope Easter Wreath sign be any more fitting?!
I stained a 1/4″ sheet of plywood with Walnut Minwax Stain, and added the plywood letters I cut using my jig-saw. Note- don’t be crazy like me and cut your letters, just go to Michaels and get the pre-cut ones, it was crazy town!
The forsythia wreath I made of course looks stunning on its own without the sign. I dressed it up with a Seafoam Faux Linen May Arts Ribbon bow.
To add to my Easter vignette I decoupaged plastic eggs with blue, gold and white tissue paper. When they were completely dry, I flicked a bit of black acrylic paint at them (I guess poop splatters make them look more authentic?). I picked up the awesome wire basket at the Wicker Emporium.
